My reference has very little data related to the 11th Armored Group, but as the man said, "here 'tis":
Departed Boston PE, 28 Feb 44;
arrived England, 8 Mar 44;
arrived France-ETO, 18 July 44;
committed to combat,31 July 44;
entered Germany, 19 Mar 45;
inactivated in Germany, 1 May 46.
Location at war's end, Apolda, Germany.
I don't know if there is a connection, but the
6th Armored Division was also located at Apolda, Germany, 15 Aug 45. It is the only armored division listed there .
The 6th A/D crossed Omaha Beach, France, 19 July 44;
entered combat, 28 July 44;
entered Germany, 20 Mar 45.
Exactly as those listed for the 11th A/G.
I hope that the above is helpful in some way.
Sorry that it isn't more.
